Happy day my lovelies! Before I start off this post, I would just like to point out that this had originally started off being a fashion post. I was gonna get to camp and all 3 days I was going to get some cute photos of warm clothes because it is freezing...
Then I got there and it just blew me away. And it was just ONE of the camps that Still Water spends time at. (I'll get to view the other camps in Feb. and in the summer). But back to what I was saying... Medina, Texas is cute; it's a small town so of course I'm going to find it absolutely adorable. But where the actual campsite is...It's breathtaking. Plus the retreat couldn't have come at a more perfect time. The start of a new year is always hard so having the perfect first weekend of the 2015 year gives me bright hope.
Some of my favorite memories I could never capture in a photo, because I was too involved to actually stay behind the camera (believe it or not).
Like being a part of the team that went undefeated in Ultimate Football (Whoop! Go Green!). Or playing (and failing at) knockout. Or just the complete feeling of being loved by your sisters and brothers in Christ, even if you just met them on that Friday.
Now that I am home, I'll go back to work and hanging out with friends; but I won't be that same young lady I started off as. In a small but big way, I have changed.
Back to what I was saying though. I went into this weekend thinking "Oh my gosh! My best friend isn't here, how am I going to get the shots that I need?" Or "Oh no! I don't know anyone! And we all know how much I suck at making friends." Yet here I am, several days later, thinking "Man! I can't wait until February so I can see everyone again!" Funny how thoughts can turn in a weekend...
Sorry for the long post, but when I was trying to figure out what I was going to say and then what photos I was going to use, it was semi-hard because it became almost impossible for me to put what I wanted to say into words or choose the photos that were just perfect for this post.
"If it scares you, it might be a good thing..."
